I AM so incandescent with rage, I am at a loss to put into words my feelings, regarding the highly insulting and defamatory letter from D Fillingham (The Press, October 18) regarding retired racehorses and greyhounds.

No one in Yorkshire (because of my work) knows better than I, that many of both live in the equivalent to any five-star hotel he cares to mention.
